Kind of stands to reason that birds & animals are more intelligent than we have given them credit for, doesn't it? I mean, they wouldn't survive if they weren't able to learn and adapt in the wild, would they?

Go on then Marigold. How does that relate to Rick?

Whoever spread that malicious rumour about sheep being thick has obviously never worked with sheep. Calculating and devious more like. Just because they don't do what you want them to doesn't make them thick.
Had a jackdaw as a child. He had four O - levels and was offered a place at Cambridge.

Rick always delights in making or adapting gizmos for his chickens, eg chicken wellies.
What class of degree did your jackdaw get?

He didn't. His tutor kicked him out at the end of his first term because he acted like a total chough.

That's great Marigold! If they can tear out shapes for treats they could get jobs in a doily factory!
I wonder if that's what all the raucous crowing is about,
'I can't find my stick. Have you had it?'
'Have you looked in that pile of useful stones?
'Well what's it doing there!?'
